Mission: To build a community that supports healthier, happier lives.
Philosophy: At our studios we make yoga accessible and inclusive - without judgment, pressure or demands. This is yoga for everyone! The Yoga Vida method connects purposeful movements with conscious breath. Our educational approach improves body awareness and promotes individual choice. We present yoga in a way that helps you think independently so you can incorporate what you learn into your life beyond the mat. Our classes may give you a sweet set of abs and a well-contoured backside, but these are merely physical benefits of a consistent practice. Walking on your hands and touching your toes are discoveries along the path - not the destination. In a traditional sense, yoga seeks peace of mind and happiness. Asana alone may not get you there, but it opens the door to awareness in all forms. At Yoga Vida, we use physical practice as an entry point to a calm, steady, and undisturbed mind. We are committed to beginning and continuing your education with quality yoga at an affordable price.
